Omega Construction of Pilot Mountain recently claimed the top spot in the Triad Business Journal’s Fast 50.
The Fast 50 is a list comprised of the Triad’s fastest growing privately held companies. In order to be considered for the Fast 50, companies must be private for-profit ventures, with their United States headquarters in the Triad, must have finished three full fiscal years and had sales of at least $2 million in 2014.
Paul Covington, Omega CEO, credits the growth of the company to the improvements in the economy especially in its primary markets — industrial, retail, hospitality, and commercial — and to the company’s commitment to customer relationships. Omega is licensed in nine states in the Southeast and in 2014 earned 30 percent of its revenue on projects in the Piedmont Triad.
Omega has 52 employees, a 30 percent increase from the previous year’s employment level. One of the companies’ biggest accomplishments for 2014 was completion of its largest project to date, a 284,150 SF Design/Build facility for Caesarstone Technologies USA in Richmond Hill, Georgia.
“Omega’s strategy as we continue to grow is focusing on attracting and retaining top talent for the next generation of employees, as well as continuously building trusting relationships with our customers,” according to Barry Hennings, president. “Omega plans to grow and expand as long as we can successfully maintain customer satisfaction and recruit/hire employees that understand how important these relationships are to our success. Omega is unwavering in that we will not sacrifice customer relationships for top-line revenue growth.”
